We hope you enjoy the video below, captured by Kate Bowditch from her canoe on an October afternoon. Fall is just flying by, and here at Greenbelt we are busier than ever with land projects, trail work, virtual events and our Annual Fund drive. We look forward to the day when we can all gather again safely. Until then, please take time to get outside and enjoy Greenbelt's properties!
